Although I live in Oklahoma, many of the memorials I have created and tombstone photos I have added are for the counties of Clay, Dickinson, Riley and Geary in Kansas. Please visit my homepage for Clay County genealogy--it contains links to the other counties mentioned, too.
Please use the "Edit" button at the top right of the memorial to request transfers or to add information. If requesting a transfer, please note how this person is related to you--not because of any FAG policy, just because I'm nosy!
I want to give a special shout out to Emily for the many obituaries she has submitted for Fairlawn Cemetery in OKC. I know that I and especially the families of those whose obits she sent appreciate it!
Well if it ever comes time, that it comes time to go, Sis' pack up your fiddle, Sis' pack up your bow. If I can't dance with you, then I won't dance at all, I'll just sit this one out, with my back to the wall. I'd rather not hear pretty music again, If I can't hear your fiddle on a magnolia wind. If I can't catch your scent on a magnolia wind.
RE: Miller/Snider in Pleasant Valley Cemetery Roston any more is almost gone. The cemetery is about as close to Buffalo, OK. The Miller buried there is my Gr grandfather, Tyre Landrus Miller and the Snider buried there is his daughter Della Oma [Miller] Snider, my grandmother. How are you connected to them?
Family tree I was able to find the name for Albert S Barr's first wife and the mother of Hazel Barr Myers (Nettie Hazel Barr Myers). It was Pernettie Keziah Whitaker Barr born on August 26 1868. I wasn't able to find any other info. I do know that she and Albert were married in Hunnewell Kansas in 1889. She died in March 1894 just a few weeks after giving birth to Hazel in January that year. I don't know if it was complications due to childbirth or something else. Wish I knew more. I did have the privilege of meeting Hazel. She was such a sweet little lady and so knowledgable about her family history. She and my Grandma Winnie Neil Smith had stories to tell! I just wish as a teenager I had listened more carefully to them! We took my Grandma to visit Hazel in the early 1970s and it was like being with 2 school age girls not 2 elderly women! It was the last time that they were together. My Grandma died in 1974 and Hazel dies in 1976. I find it rather odd that they were born 2 years apart and then passed away 2 years apart. They were extremely close as young girls spending lots of time at their Grandma Barr Gore's home with her. I carry in my Bible an Easter card that Hazel sent to my Grandma in 1960.
RE: Family Tree I don't recall any stories about the Daltons. I'll ask my siblings and see if they remember. I mostly remember my grandmother speaking fondly about the times she spent as a young girl at Naomi's place in Oklahoma along with her cousin Hazel. I also remembering her talking about Naomi's claim to her property in Oklahoma. She was quite a woman that Naomi! In fact Hazel wrote her college dissertation about Naomi and the 1889 run on Oklahoma. It contains Naomi's account of that time. I have a copy of it if you would like to read it.
